I know most of my Minnesota trees but sometimes I'm not sure. And instead of saying, example, it's an Oak or Cedar or whatever, I can say which one. Excellent pictures, mapping and brief description. It¿s a fun tool to walk in the woods with my grandchildren and share some learning experience.
Growing up in the construction industry, I've always had a love and admiration for wood products. As I become more interested in woodworking, I find myself wanting to use more local woods in my projects. This book has come in handy many times out in the field while I'm walking around looking for trees to bring to our local sawmill. Problem is, my dad keeps stealing my copy! I bought him his own copy for Christmas, and he keeps it in the truck so he always has it nearby if he wants to identify a tree. Highly recommended for nature lovers, woodworkers, and anyone who's ever wondered "what kind of tree is that?"
